April 2, 2017Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Clearwater, Florida
Hey folks! How are things out there? We’re in a teensy bit of a cold snap here and I’m dreaming of homes in tropical locales like this adorable ranch in sunny Clearwater, Florida. It has many original features that could be played up to vintage Florida kitsch perfection. It had me at the canary yellow wall oven and stovetop, and the pink and blue bathroom is just the icing on the cake. I could see a mid-century vintage lover really doing this one up- bright colors and fun retro wallpaper, Hey-Wake furniture, tropical pinch pleat drapes, vintage fish and mermaid wall plaques, tiki bar… are ya with me? 😉 Let’s check it out!
This home is located at 2030 Harding St, Clearwater, Florida on a lovely lot with mature palm trees. It is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 1,670 square foot home built in 1956 that is being offered at $235,500.

KITCHEN & DINING ROOM
(Such a cute kitchen! Change out the fluorescent light and the vinyl to retro and you’ve really got something!!)
(This home has a nice open feel)
(How darling is that scalloped trim on the bedroom closets?!)
(Pink and blue bathrooms are my fave!)
(Nice vintage tile!! I’d comb craigslist for a vintage vanity!)
(Perfect spot for a home tiki bar!)
(With a little sweat equity you could lay down a concrete pad and gravel patio, do some landscaping and have a backyard paradise!)
I see so much potential with this affordable ranch! It’s got great bones- a few flooring/light fixture swaps, some paint and mid-century décor/furniture and you’d be good to go. Anyone ready to move to Florida with me?
